LANCE ‘BUDDY’ FRANKLIN Men­tal ill­ness

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - REAL LIFE -

Be­fore tak­ing leave from AFL in 2015 to con­cen­trate on his men­tal health, Franklin said he felt in­hib­ited seek­ing help: “I was re­ally strug­gling and I put my hand up and said I needed help. I’m so glad I did it.” The Syd­ney Swans star says he tends to “strug­gle com­mu­ni­cat­ing,” and adds that his time away was “about build­ing those re­la­tion­ships and be­ing able to com­mu­ni­cate a lit­tle bit bet­ter”.
